Bells hire new play-by-play announcer for 2015 season

The Bellingham Bells hired Erik Oas to be the voice of the Bells for the 2015 season. Oas will give the play-by-play commentary for all 57 games during the summer.

A 2013 graduate of San Jose State University, Oas comes with a wealth of play-by-play experience. As a broadcaster for SJSU’s college radio station KSJS, Oas provided play-by-play commentary for several different sports for the Spartans, including baseball, football, basketball, volleyball, and hockey.

Oas is no stranger to the West Coast League, having most recently served as the broadcaster and media relations director for the Klamath Falls Gems, a West Coast League team in the South Division. While in Klamath Falls, Oas called all home and away games for the Gems. He has also called games in the California Winter League, an instructional showcase league for current professional and free agent baseball players.
